To become a participant of the competition all applicants were obliged to submit a literary paper, in audio or video format – performing a testimony of human memory. Each volunteer could take part in the competition, without regard for age or literary output – only the idea and a literary bent mattered. There has been submitted a lots of papers from Poland, Lithuania and Germany of which a few the best ones ones have been prized.
The video paper of our trainee proved to be the best and Mr. Górski won the prize in amount of 4000 Polish zlotys. The comptetion has been initiated by Mr. Maciej Zarębski and Mr. Tomasz Ulatowski. The main purpose of the contest was to make a tribute to the memory of two unusual Poles brought up in Lithuania Leon and Jan Janowicz.
It was hard to make a choice. We’ve got lots of interesting conversations, interviews and memories. We were brought into strong emotions. We have chosen these which present in possibly the best way the idea of the contest, in other words, to introduce the cose to heart Vilnius in a few kinds of conversations. – said the Chairman of the Jury Maria Kowalska-Janowicz, Jan Janowicz’s widow.
